What the Heck Is “Same Sex” Marriage
Our President has again decided to create a new morality in the USA. His administration will no longer defend in
court “The Defense of Marriage Act”.
Attorney General, Eric Holder made the announcement. His reasoning was that the present law prevents same sex
couples from receiving benefits that apply to opposite sex couples.
I’m confused. Since marriage is about creating a family and our bodies are specifically built for that purpose, how is
a same sex marriage legitimate? With five thousand years of civilization behind us, we have never had the question
of homosexual marriage before the present time.
Are we to allow a man to marry one of his farm animals or a woman to marry her pet cat? Either of these scenarios
would have as much legitimacy as two men or two women marrying each other.
It is reprehensible that we now have to give “special rights” to groups of people simply because they stamp their feet
and say “I want it”. The homosexual community has always had the same rights as the rest of the Nation. A gay
man or lesbian woman can marry the opposite sex of their choice the same rights as the rest of America.
Homosexual marriage has no benefit to the Nation or our Society. It only benefits those who participate and then
only emotionally. A real marriage produces children that have genetics from both parents. This family is the basis
for raising our future leaders and fostering emotionally mature adults. It is sanctioned by God and constitutes a
spiritual, physical and emotional bonding.
Children aren’t taught by words when it comes to morality. Right and wrong are learned through observation.
Parents that say, “don’t you do this”, but proceed to do what they just said don’t do, will teach their children that it is
acceptable to do this “forbidden” act as long as it is kept confidential. To teach children not to do something would
demand that the parents observe their own prohibition.
A heterosexual marriage gives the children a stable environment. Sons and daughters learn how to interact with the
opposite sex by observing their parents.
I have observed children of same sex couples. They are confused when they reach puberty. They have no template
of behavior. Studies have shown that these children are twice as likely to become homosexual. This begs the
question, is homosexual behavior learned or genetic?
The Bible condemns homosexual behavior in both the Old Testament and the New Testament. Looking to the
future, we cannot teach both. Either we stand by our God given commandments or we embrace perversion. There
are going to be Constitution conflicts in an effort to create a comfortable environment for homosexuals. The
religious foundations of our Nation are in jeopardy.
I do not believe in discrimination of any type. However, I don’t find it discriminatory to have Men’s and Women’s
rest room. The very fact that nobody manufactures female urinals universally understood to be a concession to the
physical difference between men and women. It’s a matter of common sense.
It follows that Marriage is gender specific. Like the urinals mentioned above, it is universally understood that same
sex couples can never be considered a “marriage”.
